Miguel Ángel Garrido was born and raised in Madrid, Spain, and he is a proud Madrileño. He completed his undergraduate studies in mathematics at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Boston University. After a two-year stay in the U.K., where he received his master’s degrees from University of Cambridge and The London School of Economics and Political Science, he joined the Statistics Department at Columbia University in August 2016. While pursuing his Ph.D., Miguel has actively engaged with the Columbia community. In 2019 he was a fellow at the Center for Teaching and Learning, and currently he is part of the International Fellows Program at the School of International and Public Affairs. In his free time, Miguel is an avid theatre-goer, and he loves discovering new restaurants with his boyfriend (activities that he hopes to enjoy again post-COVID).
